Subject: Spacey Goodness.
Fantastic, grainy footage of fluids doing very psychedelic things in zero gravity. Globules bounce and merge and wobble through air as spacemen observe and draw scientific conclusions. Chop out the narrator NASA guy and you have yourself a literal desktop lava lamp.

Oh yeah, and there is science involved and you could probably learn something on the way.
